As a kid, I went berserk for Barbie. I had the clothes, the camper, multiple Kens…mmmmm, multiple Kens…
And now *a few* years later my daughter Avery is playing “Barbies.” Sadly, I didn’t hang on to any of my Barbies (I gave them to a younger neighbour). It’s probably for the best—most of my dolls were bald-ish after I attempted and failed to master the “Dorothy Hamill” haircut.
Not only do Avery and I love to play with Barbies, Avery has her own “Barbie My Dreams” account. This post isn’t about that, but I’m sharing because hello…
2. It’s free fun.
3. You can play with Barbie clothes and watch the latest “Life in the Dreamhouse” episodes (Hilarious. Seriously Ken? Him on his proximity to cuteness~> “I suffer from ‘Hyper Cuteness Sensitivity Disorder‘. Whenever I’m in close proximity to something adorable I, well….faint. It’s quite common.” Hahaha! Also, “Schlond poofda!”). You can also play games, download ebooks & printables, etc.
4. It’s like Pinterest, but Barbie.
If you love Barbie or know a kid who does, you’re still reading.
If you’re my husband, you’ve already bailed and clicked over to TSN to watch football.
I’m so confident he’s no longer reading that I can say without fear of retribution that football is mind numbingly boring and that I hate doing those lame football picks every weekend. I only offer my input to get it over with so I’ll be left alone to drink my coffee and read the paper in peace. Ahhhhh. It feels good to get that off my chest.
Barbie™ may have a tiny waist, but she has an enormous heart! She’s inviting her fans to share their heartfelt wishes for those they care most about, and then share their wish with the world!
Fans can submit their wishes
to Barbie.com/mydreams until December 31st. Once uploaded to Barbie
my Dreams™, submissions are sent to the parent’s email address used to register for the Barbie my Dreams™

(a teacher, a friend, an aunt, grandma, etc).
For every wish submitted and shared, $1.00 will be donated to Make-A-Wish® Canada to help the wishes of kids across Canada come true (up to $10,000).
Have your child think of someone in their life who deserves something special, and submit a wish. However big or small, Barbie™ wants to know what you’re wishing for.
Canadians are also encouraged to spread social joy using the #BarbieWishes hashtag, and Barbie™ will donate $1.00 for qualifying posts to a maximum of $10,000. Barbie™ will also celebrate the season by granting one of the wishes submitted online!
I helped Avery submit her wish on Barbie my Dreams™. It’s something EXTRA special and definitely from the heart.
Take a moment to share a wish and remember, each wish made is another dollar towards Make-A-Wish® Canada. PLUS, there’s a chance to have YOUR wish granted among other fabulous prizes up for grabs.
Read the rules & regulations for full details.
There are twenty-four secondary prizes each consisting of a Barbie prize pack. Each Secondary Prize has an approximate retail value of $100 CAD.
Disclosure: This is NOT a sponsored post—I did not get paid to post this and Ken did not come over to rub my shoulders and serve me pinot grigio while I wrote this. We did get an awesome Glam Camper and a Holiday Barbie (I promise not to cut her hair!) as a thank you for sharing. Avery will lose her Barbie loving mind when she finds out!
